Primarily a Trend Trader, I looking to buy leading stocks in leading groups as they breakout of sound basing patterns based on the CANSLIM trading approach made famous by William J. O’Neil and used by champion traders such as David Ryan and Mark Minervini. I will also hop on board existing trends on pullbacks, long or short. There are other setups I may trade but they occur less frequently and I cover those as they arise. The main methodology is to swing trade half of my position for profits while trying to hold the second half of the position for intermediate to longer term gains. I feel this gives me the best of both worlds-locking in shorter term profits while still lending me the opportunity for those occasional homeruns that really make the difference in your returns.
